The following is what David Holmes had to say in response the the question, What is wrong with affiliate marketing and how can it be improved?
The number 1 problem I have with major affiliate organizations (Commission Junction, Link Share, etc), is that their sites are impossible to navigate without adjusting Windows default settings.
They are blocked by Windows and this problem is compounded when I add Spyware/Adware.
It took me months to figure out how to get on the site just to join, and this makes it hard to refer others through as downlines.
I had to download Fire Fox just to use to access these sites to get banners and links and to check my stats.
I don’t expect to win a T-Shirt for this (Editor note – you’re getting one anyway), but I sure appreciate a chance to get this off my chest.
I think it would be a big help to both parties to have the site visited by an affiliate manager. This looks like there is care in a personal way and many sites could use some suggestions.
How would you answer the question, What is wrong with affiliate marketing and how can it be improved? There are no right or wrong answers – just opinions that can help improve the industry.
